Music and Sound Studies Syllabus
This syllabus features significant books from our Music and Sound Studies e-book collection that push at the edges of how music is discussed. The ethnomusicology titles on this list find new links between music and culture, while the sound studies titles establish a new framework for theorizing the larger context of how we listen. Addressing musical cultures from around the world, these books consider music and sound broadly, taking into account social, cultural, physiological, and technological dimensions. Duke University Press also publishes two music-related journals (not included in the collection): the Journal of Music Theory and Black Sacred Music, offered as an archival collection of 9 volumes.
